This recipe sounds a lot like an adaptation of Bon Appetit's recipe that was published in September 2001 for their ethnic restaurant issu.e I have tried this recipe before and I had to make A LOT of changes to it. It wasn't spicy enough for me and so I added fresh ground hot chiles, some roasted ground cumin, and I doubled the amount of Cajun seasoning. I also added about 3 ounces of tomato paste to it. The overall result was pretty tasty. I don't know how authentically Ethiopian it is, but it tasted good.

- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cardamom
- 1⁄8 teaspoon ground allspice
- 2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
